Volunteers are the backbone of Special Olympics Vermont. They enable Special Olympics to offer sports training and competition and provide our athletes with the opportunity to grow and showcase their skills. When you volunteer, you join an international family of people from all walks of life who gain a greater understanding of and appreciation for people with intellectual disabilities through their participation. The Special Olympics movement can ultimately transform communities by inspiring people throughout the world to open their minds, accept and include people with intellectual disabilities and thereby celebrate the similarities common to all people.
As a Special Olympics volunteer you will take pride in knowing that you are an important part of a global movement that provides athletes with intellectual disabilities an opportunity to experience the excitement, joy and personal fulfillment associated with sports training and competition. Special Olympics is something that has to be experienced to be believed.
